Dorset must be the closest county to London that truly feels ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’. So runs the title of one of the best-known novels by Thomas Hardy, Dorset’s most famous son. We have a Feather Down outside Weymouth. East Shilvinghampton is a farm just off Chesil Beach that has been with us for nearly 15 years. Further inland Mount Pleasant is also one of our originals. Both will steep you in tranquillity and calm. A soothing balm to city life and the ideal spot for a family holiday in Dorset.
Allow yourself to be swept away by a new form of luxury. At our farms, you are always surrounded by open landscapes and seas of rolling green fields. Instead of the angry honking of cars, the pleasant chirping of birds will never be out of earshot. Animals are always within your reach; lazily grazing on the grass. Life on the farm is an adventure, every step of the way.
Modelled on a typical farm-house from a bygone era, our canvas hideaways are more than spacious enough to house your family and animals now, as they were back then. Our canvas hideaways can be both a space to chill - with a sofa and comfy beds - and a space to play in. Not only are there all manner of nooks and crannies to hide in, the canvas hideaway increases in size when you open up the front to include the canopy.
Your canvas hideaway comes with fresh running water, a fully equipped kitchen, a flushing toilet, and comfy beds - all the luxury you’ll need. But unlike back then, you can now choose a private shower. Book a canvas hideaway in Dorset with Feather Down for an unforgettable family holiday experience.
